What do you get when you combine celebrities, CÎROC Vodka and Skybar at the Mondrian Hotel? A smashing good Memorial Day Weekend, that’s what!
Last weekend, in honor of Memorial Day, Malin Akerman and Amy Smart hosted the CÎROC Ultra Premium Memorial Day weekend blast at the Skybar in Los Angeles. Upon entering the bash, guests were greeted by a mural drawn by local L.A. artist Gregory Siff, that paid tribute to the raucous good times the 10-block Sunset Strip has seen over the last 10 decades.
While lounging by the pool, guests sipped on CÎROC Ultra Premium and watched the documentary ‘Sunset Strip: The Movie’. The fascinating documentary revealed legendary actors, actresses, musicians and comedians reminiscing about the good times they had on the Sunset Strip.
I would definitely recommend watching this film. It is a true original and will take you back in time, learning things you thought you knew but really didn’t. I sampled the CÎROC’s Official drink of Summer (recipe below).
An installation by Art of Elysium and water walking performances inside a huge clear ball were a highlight of the Memorial Day Weekend as well. Events like this show you why L.A. IS the place. If you are interested in purchasing some really cool art pieces for your home or favorite space, I definitely recommend visit the Art of Elysium shop of the The Mondrian Hotel located off the infamous Sunset Strip. Summer is coming, so go get that CÎROC and make sure you don’t drink and drive.
The Memorial Day Weekend party at the Skybar was the first of three CÎROC Cabana Club event series taking place throughout the summer, hosted by Malin Akerman and Amy Smart. The next two Cabana Club events in conjunction with Art of Elysium will take place in Chicago on the 4th of July, and Labor Day (September 3rd) in The Hamptons.
